When it comes to all-around great entertainers, Brad Paisley has proven he more than fits the bill, even under quarantine. Brad was one of the first to have safely socially distanced guests on his livestream performances, he has juggled fishing lures, colored wife Kimberly’s hair, crashed Zoom parties, and released a new song, “No I in Beer.” And now it looks as if he’s started a new band — The Lonesome Distancers.

Brad shared a video on Instagram of himself and some of his presumed neighbors, including hit songwriter Jon Randall, having a little backyard picking party with Ricky Skaggs’ iconic hit, “Highway 40 Blues.” The country star writes, “This is how we quarantine in the country. 2 yards apart. Literally. #loveyourneighbor but also #socialdistancing .”

Sounds like Brad could have a new permanent opening act.

Of course, it hasn’t all been sunshine and rainbows for Brad, who is sheltering at home with Kim, sons Huck and Jasper, and a menagerie of farm animals. At one point, his beautiful and equally talented and funny bride had to take matters into her own hands and restrain her husband…for his own good.
